Thought about your little herd the other day, my in-laws went to Scottsdale recently and came back with the CMK Heritage catalog, Charles Craver III had a nice article in it. I think he's the person you are leasing Palisades from, right? A lot of CF horses were listed in the catalog as well.

I am not leasing Palisades from Charles (who is an extremely nifty person, btw, and I urge you to visit and see the horses if you happen to be anywhere between St. Louis and Chicago). Charles bred both Palisades and Petit Point. While he didn't breed Capucine, he did breed both of her parents.

I didn't realize your in-laws were into Arabians...!

I'm actually in San Jose, my in-laws live up in Vacaville. And yeah, they have been working with arabians all their lives, Mr. and Ms. Aronsen actually meet while both of them were working at Kellogg when the breeding program was still being managed by Mr. Dun. They currently have 5 arabians of their own, one boarder, and two that are being housed for a family friend who is attending UC Davis. They have some wonderful blood lines, but except for one of the geldings which was intentionally purchased and the filly that they've bred, all were 'hard luck' horses that found their way to their home because someone else didn't want them. Including, weirdly enough, a Bey Shah son, the woman who bred him wanted a filly and was terrified of stallions, so for the first few years of his life he was mainly kept inside a completely closed stall. He's wiggy about the top of the stall door getting closed to this day.
